Dear Robert,

It is with great pleasure that I share with you important news that Dr. Conrado "Bobby" Gempesaw, President of St. John’s University, shared with the faculty, staff, and administration of our University earlier today: St. John’s has received the largest single donation in our 148-year-old history. The extraordinary $15 million gift is from The Starr Foundation, and will establish the Maurice R. Greenberg Leadership Initiative at the School of Risk Management, Insurance and Actuarial Science (SRM)—part of The Peter J. Tobin College of Business.

With this gift, SRM is poised to build on its more than century-old mission of educating future business leaders who will continue to shape the insurance industry for generations to come. We are truly grateful to The Starr Foundation and to the Foundation’s Chairman, Mr. Maurice R. "Hank" Greenberg, for their support.

For more information about this historic gift, please see the press release which was issued earlier today.

St. John's is fortunate to have the collective support of those who make giving to our University an important priority in their lives. This support has led to another historic first: St. John's raised $27 million in philanthropic funds in 2017–18, representing a record amount of cash raised in a single fiscal year. Generous gifts to our University came from 11,418 donors—including alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff, administration, corporations and foundations.

This is an exciting time at St. John's. We are confident that the entire University community will continue to make a difference in the lives of our students and in the broader community for years to come.

Thank you.

Was going to post this as I got it in my email and was pleasantly surprised! Looks like all the money will be allocated to that specific program right? Maybe Mr. Repole will help us make a new Carnesecca-Repole Arena next? ;)

It's not going to athletics thank God!
If they want any $$ allocated to sports they should hire an Athletic Director who is experienced in fund raising.

Speaking of help, what's the latest with Rice and Heron?

Is Rice and the University still talking? Will Heron be granted the hardship waiver?

What are people's thoughts in offering Ed Kull the job, if he would even take it? He connects will with the alumni. Seems to be in line at Fordham for a bigger gig too.
